The majority of medically compromised patients need oral health care; hence a working knowledge of the multitude of compromised conditions is essential for dental professionals. The curriculum during the 3rd professional year of BDS includes training in general medicine. The students acquire knowledge and skills of analyzing findings from patient's history, signs and symptoms. Special emphasis is placed on assessment of cardiovascular disorder, endocrine disorder, metabolic disorder, respiratory problems, renal diseases, infectious diseases, and blood dyscrasias.
Asan Memorial Dental College is attached with Government Chengalpattu Medical College and Hospital for giving live demo on patients to BDS students studying general medicine.
